Frances was living to be a witness
Sagasta applied for a delayed birth certificate while living in New Jersey in 1941. Even though I have not located him yet on the 1940 Census, I searched the 1940 Census and found Frances (widowed) living with Ulysses and Martha Gill in Jersey City, New Jersey. Martha was one of the six remaining living children out of 13 total on the 1910 Census. She must have been named after my 2nd great grandmother and mother to Uncle Julius. Also in the household was Frances' son, Hasco.
"United States Census, 1940," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/K4B3-HLV : accessed 06 Jan 2014), Frances Tally in household of Ulysses Gill, Ward 8, Jersey City, Jersey City, Hudson, New Jersey, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 24-208, sheet 61B, family , NARA digital publication of T627, roll 2407.
From there I also discovered what I think is the Social Security Death Index for Frances who lived to the age of 94 (May 1969), however, this will need to be confirmed. I am hoping this will reveal who her parents are.
Cousin fun on Facebook
I could not find a death record for Julius. Amazingly, my cousin Rolanda has also felt inspired to search for more information on this family. She is a great researcher, and has always been able to find things I did not know. Even though she is asking if I knew anything about Hasco C. Talley who I discovered living in Newark, she reveals that members of this family lived in New York. Ten years between censuses can cause you to miss important information like that. I am excited that she has also found the name of Hasco's wife and their burial site. She even shared the dates of his enlistment in the army. I know she would have eventually looked in the 1940 Census for Hasco. I am just glad she asked me so that we could put all of this together. What fun!
I wonder if Julius is buried there? I cannot really go by the age at last birthday on the delayed death certificate because it says Julius was 42 when he died. I know that cannot be true because I found him when he was 53 years old on the 1930 Census. So we need to figure out if Julius died in New York (if he even lived there) or New Jersey.
So many clues are coming to the surface that I will need to review each one individually. I am finally pleasantly overwhelmed by all the information accessible through historical records online. I cannot weight until Rolanda weighs in on this. At any rate, I do not think it is a coincidence that Rolanda has been researching the same branch of the family at the same time and also asked me about Hasco whom I just discovered. We have been searching this family for over 15 years. Something tells me she is about to discover living cousins.
